RBC Heritage Preview: A Shot-Maker's Course
RBC Heritage Preview: A Shot-Maker's Course

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

There's generally a post-major hangover that lasts about a week, but after the events last Sunday, this particular hangover might last a few weeks. Nonetheless, the PGA Tour moves on and this week, the crew heads to South Carolina. The week after a major is generally a good time for the elite players to take the week off, but with the condensed schedule, some big names will tee it up this week. Harbour Town has been the location for this event since the beginning of time, which means we'll rely heavily on course history this week.   

This week: RBC Heritage – Harbour Town, Hilton Head, S.C. 

Last Year: Satoshi Kodaira shot a final-round 66 on his way to a playoff victory over Si Woo Kim.  


Dustin Johnson (7-1) 

It makes sense that DJ is the heavy favorite this week as he's easily the biggest name in the field and Is coming off a T2 at the Masters last week. He's only played this event three times, two of which came a decade ago, which means he does not have a lot of course history. He finished T16 last year at this event, but obviously that's not good enough when you take a guy like DJ. This is really a shot-maker's course, one that can be easily overpowered, which takes away a huge advantage for DJ. As such, he's probably overpriced this week as the heavy favorite.
